    Our son, Stude-Sled had a stroke on June 19. He is in Cox Hospital in Springfield, MO. He is progressing, but it is slow. His left leg is a little "slow" but he can walk. His left arm "tingles". On Saturday he said his arm was hurting a lot along with the tingling. His nurse called his doctor, and he said that was good news, that meant the blood was beginning to flow again to his arm. He has his strength, but the motor skills are not there now. He will be doing therapy and rehabilitation for quite some time. We thought we were going to loose him. Now he has to keep a positive outlook, which is a little difficult to do right now. He said the feeling he has in his hand and arm feels like when your hand goes to sleep, that is why he can't tell about the grip of his hand. This is bothering him a lot. He needs your prayers. He is 37 years old with a 10 year old daughter that she says she loves her Daddy more than anyone else in the world. I don't want her to be without her Daddy. His wife and family needs him. Please keep Brian in your thoughts and prayers. Wanda and Dusty Taylor

    take it slow - my wifes cousin (who is like a brother to her) had a stroke at the age of 34 - he is coming back slowly - the time is the issue - it just seems like it takes forever.......but try to keep up his spirits best you can and focus on the end result which will be getting back up and getting back into life

    Scott wasnt able to walk - he is now walking and can speak again - although it is difficult to understand.....but again over time they say that he will get better - our thoughts and prayers go out to ya

    WE will have prayers put on the list that helped our 37-year-old daughter last year when the dr.'s thought she had a brain tumor. She has three boys the oldest will be ten soon. Good luck to your family, and especially your son to make a full recovery.

    The Chapel is praying for your son.
  18. Prayers for Brian and his family!

    When ones head is down, even a speed bump looks like a brick wall. Keep your head up and focused on the goal. Concentrate on getting better, a little better each day, realizing it will not be an overnight recovery.

    Godspeed Brian.

    Prayers from Oklahoma, stay strong, I know folks who have come back 100% from strokes. Of course a little Devine intervention doesn't hurt.

    my thoughts and prayers are with him...He should make a 100% comeback being that he is young and hearing that he is walking. the motor skills will come back just tell him to keep working at it.

    My dad had a stroke in his 50's and made a full recovery, A cousin of mine and a friend of mine both had strokes in the 30's and made full recovery. So it is possible.

    EDIT: also for those of you out there get to know the stroke symptoms! If you think you are having a stroke or think someone is having a stroke call 911 or whatever the emergency number is in your area and do it quick. Time matters when dealing with strokes.
